This article contains information from later episodes of The Magnus Archives, and may contain major spoilers for the setting and plot.
Alice is first mentioned in MAG 43, where it is told that she had been sectioned for spider husks. When a gunshot victim tries to force a gun to his own head, she wrestles it away.
Alice appears again in MAG 61 where she gives her own statement, describing how her first section 31 occurred when she and her partner, Isaac Masters, stopped a Breekon & Hope delivery van that was driving very slowly in the rain on the M6 near Preston. Masters opened the coffin being transported and disappeared down the staircase inside. Tonner was injured and made to sign Section 31.
Alice interrogates Tim, Martin, and Elias in MAG 82 in order to find where Jon was hiding. During these interviews, she threatens to do whatever she must to find Jon. It is during her interview with Elias that it is revealed how she got her nickname "Daisy", after an incident with a friend, Calvin Benchly, left her with a starburst-shaped scar on her back. She later killed Calvin and disposed of the body.
In MAG 88, Basira appears at the beginning of the episode looking for Alice. When she hears that Alice claimed to have "full operational discretion" she becomes distressed and says that she needs to find either Jon or Alice quickly.
Alice finally tracks Jon down in MAG 91, and knocks out and kills Michael Crew. She is only prevented from doing the same to Jon by the arrival of Basira. Basira convinces Alice to try to get Jon to use his compulsion ability to extract a confession from Elias for the murder of Jurgen Leitner and Gertrude Robinson.
Following the confrontation with Elias in MAG 92, in which Basira becomes his hostage, Alice begins working for Elias. She hunts down agents of the Stranger and acts as Jon's escort and bodyguard, to prevent a repeat of his kidnapping by Nikola Orsinov. During MAG 96: Return to Sender she helps capture and interrogate Sarah Baldwin.
Alice becomes a key part of the plan to stop the Unknowing, due her knowledge of how to set the plastic explosives that will be used to disrupt the ritual, as well as general competence at violence. During MAG 119: Stranger and Stranger she comes face to face with Breekon & Hope. Unable to remember how to use her gun in the chaos of the Unknowing, she instead seems to give in to the Hunt, tearing into one of them while growling and laughing crazily, killing one of the delivery duo. The surviving one uses the coffin they carry with them, opening it and likely repeating what happened to her old partner in MAG 61: Hard Shoulder, where he felt compelled to enter the coffin. Alice enters the coffin, and vanishes.In MAG 120: Eye Contact, Elias confirms that Alice did not make it back from the Unknowing. However, this episode also implies she is not yet dead, as her statement taken in MAG 61 is included among those the Archivist visits in his dreams, and those statement givers who are dead are not included in said dreams. Elias's narration notes she is absent from the dream, though, and that it feels empty.
